Social Dialogue

The construction industry is characterised by specific elements which distinguish the sector from others in the following ways, for example:
 
  • the fact that it is not the "final product" that moves within the single market, but rather the enterprises and their workforces that have to move to where the "product” is to be constructed;
  • labour-intensive activity;
  • high mobility of its workforce;
  • the higher risk of (fatal) accidents;
  • linked to local traditions, climatic and cultural factors;
  • etc.
Due to these specific characteristics, the social partners (trade unions and employers) have a significant role to play in organising and regulating the construction industry via industrial relations. Their role is not limited to the traditional aspects of industrial relations such as, for example, wages, working conditions, health and safety, social protection, but it is also to develop the long-term sustainability of the construction industry.
 
Strengthening of autonomous industrial relations within the construction industry is therefore part of our priorities.
